Business Comments:

I did my first PV system work at Lama Foundation, a spiritual community in northern New Mexico, in 1988-89, with help from Windy Dankoff. PV study at Colorado Mountain College (became SEI), Agate Flat (HP), self-study, PV design/sales for electrical contractor in western Colorado, 91-96. Bought Windy Dankoff's retail operations (client list, non-compete, good will and support) in early 1997.

Started Positive Energy on a shoestring; now grown to three offices (Santa Fe, Albuquerque, and Las Cruces) and about 85 employees. Still locally-owned, employee-owned, sustainable and living wage-based, and the largest B Corporation in New Mexico.

In 2004 Taiyoko Sadewic and Mark Drummond bought into the business as equal partners, which allowed the business to grow beyond my techweenie limitations.

In April 2014 I retired from Positive Energy. I have since formed Sindelar Solar as a sole proprietorship focused on service, repair and upgrades of PV systems for off grid and water pumping applications. I will also continue to care for Positive Energy's legacy customer base, as my former company quickly dropped off grid work from its services once I left.

I will also continue to pursue interesting projects in these specialties within the US and abroad, and will continue to teach and write as I settle further into my graybeard years.
